Subject Re: Top level project status
Date Sun, 12 Mar 2006 22:40:52 GMT
Avik, I also hope you speak up on the general@ or PMC list, I know it 
isn't your first instinct but speaking out risks accomplishing nothing 
-- staying silent assures it.  Moreover, those of you who do cross 
multiple projects on Jakarta should try and activate your fellow 
committers to speak up.  Right now general@jakarta.apache.org is a 
pretty low traffic list.  I know most folks hate to mix it up there and 
I don't think you have to.  Just a short statement to 
general@jakarta.apache.org "I also oppose these and similar proposals 
because...." and leave it at that. 

And think of how fun it would be if no user ever used the list because 
it was "jakarta-user@jakarta.apache.org" -- you know what would happen!
